The knowledge of God, part 2
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. John 1-4
This same Word which I am speaking of and John the apostle was speaking of was present at the very beginning of the earth and the bible. This is the same Word which “spoke”, all things into being, created all things. This is God’s supernatural power in motion, the Word. This Word is not merely text on a page but actually, “power’, ready to be spoken, put in motion. The scriptures go on to say that this Word was the very essence of the Christ manifested as prophesied.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,(and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 1:14
In the same chapter it says this:
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: John1:12
So, why all this scripture about Jesus if this entry is about, the Word and being blessed? Because the commandments that Jesus told us are the greatest, which all of the law of the prophets rest upon are these. Love God with all of your heart and love your neighbor as yourself. Another scripture, the one cited immediately above is not to be read without truly realizing what it says. This little short verse is packed with power and spiritual blessing for if you receive him, who is the Word, the Christ who became One with God, it says he gives power to become the sons of God! The above scriptures also point out that Jesus is the Word made flesh. But why does it say the word was made flesh? What does this mean, the word became flesh? It means the very power of God which is, his word, was in Jesus, was the very essence of him and therefore when he spoke, God’s supernatural power was released! Then the scriptures say that as many as received him became sons of God! Glory to God, this is powerful! This puts Christ’s power, who is the very essence of the word, God’s supernatural power into you when you receive him. This is a surrendering of our ego, realizing that it is God, the Christ who is now in us. When we realize this then we know that we have absolutely nothing to fear! No longer are we at the mercy of the world but are walking with the power of God in us! This is when we receive also the, “blessing”, which comes from being a child of God, one who is walking not by sight, but by faith as we discussed in the chapter on, Faith and the Unseen, previously. This blessing is the blessing of Abraham and his seed, his descendants, which also includes those who have been adopted into the family of Abraham by faith.
And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that shall curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
This blessing which is bestowed on believers is spoken of in Galatians. This clearly lets us know that we too are blessed!
Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness, Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen (Us) through faith preached before the gospel unto Abraham saying; In thee shall all nations be blessed. So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. Galatians 3:6-9
Since Abraham was blessed because of his faith, we too become blessed because we have believed and received the Christ. Then later on in the chapter it clearly states, The just shall live by faith. Gal.3:11.
This is why Jesus came, to get the Jews back on track, to show that it is the faith of Abraham that established the blessing. He not only showed this to the Jewish people but also showed the gentile, people referred to as those not aligned with the Jewish doctrine of laws, that it is our faith which brings the blessings of God. This should open the eyes of believers to the power of faith, but some churches have not taught that if you have sufficient faith, anything is possible, that the Word is the supernatural power of God, that Jesus is the Word become flesh, so if you have received him, you have the very power of God in you ready to do whatsoever! Glory to God! This is what gives a believer power and peace; for if you are walking with the power of God in you, then when adversity comes and we are foretold it will come, you will be armed with the Word of God ready to be spoken, that is, released, putting the very power of God into motion! Wow, how awesome is this! The dunamis power, the dynamic power of God ready to move in the unseen creating the seen! Until next time, love and light to you all!
